OFF TOPIC: Steve Ignorant and the Lifeboats
As co-founder and lead singer of 1970s punk band Crass, Steve Ignorant was at the forefront of the anarchist movement, taking part in direct action and arranging 24 hour squats.
But now his life has taken a rather different turn.
Having moved to the sleepy Norfolk seaside village of Sea Palling, Steve now volunteers as a crew member in the village's independent lifeboat service.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Whoever edited this piece for BBC daytime TV, either has an impish sense of humour or didn't listen to the opening words of Do the Owe us a Living?

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?
Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
